Search for resources on and you may end up with so many results, that you may be bewildered. Fortunately, you can filter these search results to show only files of a particular type, license, or language -- in this tutorial we'll explore how to filter search result in

  1. Search for a topic in the site, and you'll see the results come up, as shown in Figure 1.

  2. Within the search results page you'll find four options to filter them, as marked in Figure 1 above. These options are explained below:

    1. Results: Here you can view the number of searched files. This of course is not a filter option, but as you filter using the next three options, the number that you see here will vary.

    2. Content type: Click to bring a drop-down list which provides list of file types, as shown in Figure 2. Choose the file type to see the result in selected file type only. These file types represent the formats that currently supports, and the list may change to support more file types in the future.

    3. License: This brings up a drop-down list with various licenses, as shown in Figure 3. Choose any license to filter the search result. These licenses are similar to the Creative Commons licenses, but they are not spelled out as Creative Commons on the Docs site.
